WASHINGTON – Rep. Steve Scalise is believed to have once met with reporters inside Politico’s editorial offices in the northern region of the former Confederate state of Virginia.

But the website and Capitol Hill newsletter refused to answer questions about its relationship with the known white-supremacist-meeting-attender.

Scalise was interviewed by Politico during a May 2014 media tour in which the congressman visited various newsrooms to promote a proposed Republican Obamacare alternative. The tour occurred just twelve short years after Scalise’s well-documented attendance at a meeting of the European-American Unity and Rights Organization.

Politico recently announced the creation of a new European-exclusive Politico subsidiary.

“Why are you asking?” said Politico reporter John Bresnahan when pressed to confirm his association with Scalise.

“​​I will pass on our request to our staff who handle media requests,” Bresnahan added.

Prominent Washington Post correspondent Wesley Lowery recently revealed that “black people don’t work for Politico.”
